Eric, Using the wrapper on an intel mac, if you open a session that was created 3 years ago, in PT 7.x and it had a Trilogy instance, what happens? Can you load your old preset to the wrapper? What is/was your workaround when trying to restore pre-wrapper sessions? This will be the situation I will be in once I go to PT 8.01 (except using PPC). Trilogy will not load once you are at 8.01 - so just trying to wrap my head around how to restore (even just to figure out if I used a preset) old work. I WISH I could simply put a project to bed once delivered - but in my world, we are CONSTANTLY revisiting projects from 2-15 years ago - just this morning I had an opportunity to do a remix based on a track we delivered only 3 years ago - and it took jumping through hoops to load it. If I needed 100% of the mix restored, it would have been almost impossible.
As one of my mentors told me many years ago, 'if you are remixing it, why do you care what the recall sheet says, it wasn't good enough anyway?' But that was before we had near-instant recall and we now routinely jump from song to song, never a possibility in the old days.

I guess I should have been keeping better notes of presets and settings, external from the plug. This is a habit we used to do religiously when it wasn't all in the box. Maybe this should be a standard practice going forward. ALWAYS save presets externally. ALWAYS write down preset names externally.
Revisiting Trillian For Mac
ALWAYS document or screen capture settings. Thanks to all for making me think about better ways to cover my butt going forward.

Old sessions load fine with the wrapper. Trilogy runs as a sort of stand-alone in the background and is patched in through the wrapper. I'm 99.9% sure that each pre-Intel Trilogy patch has loaded correctly with the wrapper. What's NOT solid with the wrapper is audio playback, which usually results in a crash at some point.
If you're merely opening old sessions to see what bass patch and settings you used, that should work fine. It's what I'll have to do once I get Trilian up and running. I imagine a lot of people are in this boat.
